linux installer fails to see a sda1 after the drive was used in a raid

Stump the installer. Last week we had another challenging install at the local installfest in that most installer programs would not see the HDD sda. server did work but no desktop versions. after going home I found this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2003675 checked and verified and even and format and new partition tables the drive still thought it was part of the raid. sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sda fixed it and then all installer programs seemed to work fine

Playing DVDs in Ubuntu 14.04

Playing DVDs used to be easy just install Ubuntu restricted extras or install VLC media player but at several recent installfests this did not work. Thanks to wmack he found the answer in the links below. Due a legal change you now must Buy the Fluendo DVD Player or open the Ubuntu Software Center search for and install libdvdread4 and libdvdnav4 and/or Ubuntu restricted extras then just copy and paste the folloiwing in a terminal
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

legal issues aside this will make it play and work
